Network Infrastructure Startup Vyatta Raises $12M

Network infrastructure startup Vyatta has raised $12 million in new funding led by HighBAR Partners with JPMorgan, Arrowpath Venture Partners and Citrix Systems participating. This brings Vyatta’s total funding to more than $45 million.

Founded in 2005, Vyatta allows enterprises to segment and secure virtualized environments. The company offers an enterprise-focused network routing, security, and traffic management software that enables network administrators to leverage the performance of Intel/AMD hardware, as well as run in VMWare, Xen, and Hyper-V virtual environments.

The company says its offering is unique in that it enables the network to offer the same elasticity and mobility as the application infrastructure it supports. Vyatta will use the new capital to scale its sales and engineering efforts.
